If you are an enthusiastic cook you can prepare your own delicious snails for your guests in any way you choose. Please ask if you would like a copy of our cooking instructions. Our book 'Molluscs and Me' has lots of recipes sandwiched between the chapters.
If you want to rear your own snails at home then why not sign up for a course. We can supply you with breeders, information and snail food to grow your own.
Our mini snail farms make the perfect educational gift, providing an ideal way for children to learn about looking after living things. Adults enjoy looking after snails too so why not give them a snail smallholder starter pack or a Grow Your Own Escargots gift?
